I saw someone at some suggest this at ESPN. Stick all the teams that didn't make "The Big Dance" and put them in a tourney. Someone at another board actually set the brackets up. Of course, since there's only 14 teams, the #1 seeds would automatically gets byes so...

1. Cleveland/New Jersey v. 8. (BYE)
4. New York v. 5. Milwaukee
3. Toronto v. 6. Charlotte
2. Orlando v. 7. Atlanta

1. Minnesota v. 8. (BYE)
4. Golden State v. 5. Utah
3. L.A. Lakers v. 6. Portland
2. L.A. Clippers v. 7. New Orleans

So who wins the NBA NIT?

I'd have to go with Golden State, myself.


Completely hypothetical, folks.

They say that now, but the enduring marathon I like to call the NBA playoffs will change the tunes pretty quick. I'm building up my energy, because I'll know I need it to make it through all 4 rounds of the Playoffs.

Hee, the NBA NIT! Never thought of that before! If we were to have one, I'd make it a single-elimination tournament because as Packman said, the NBA Playoffs themselves are long enough by themselves.

First round:

Cleveland (bye)
Milwaukee d. New York
Charlotte d. Toronto
Orlando d. Atlanta

Minnesota (bye)
Golden State d. Utah
L.A. Lakers d. Portland
L.A. Clippers d. New Orleans

Second round:

Cleveland d. Milwaukee
Orlando d. Charlotte

Golden State d. Minnesota
L.A. Clippers d. L.A. Lakers

Conference finals:

Cleveland d. Orlando
Golden State d. L.A. Clippers


Golden State d. Cleveland

So, yeah, I'd go with the Warriors as well. They've been on quite a hot streak as of late-- too bad that when it comes to the rest of the season...

I think Minnesota would win it, over Cleveland in the finals. I also think the Clippers would beat the Lakers in a second-round series.
